Hotel le Bristol
This gem, a short stroll from the beautiful Jardin des Tuileries, dates back to 1925, offering refined rooms featuring Louis XV and Louis XVI furniture, as well as marble bathrooms. There's a spa, an indoor pool and a lovely rooftop terrace. Rooms from around £580 per night.
Le maison Favart
This hotel is handily located near the upscale department stores on Boulevard Haussmann, and the Comic Opera, an integral part of the hotel's history, is a few steps away. Full of 18th-century charm and quirky character, memorabilia of the Favart theatrical family adorns the walls. It's been beautifully updated with all mod cons, including a sumptuous, cascade-filled relaxation pool. Rooms from £180 per night.
Right at the entrance of Disneyland Paris, this luxe hotel has Victorian-style rooms, many with their own terraces, and spacious family suites for up to five people.

This opulent boutique hotel, Oscar Wilde's final home, is nestled on Paris' Left Bank. This place is much more than a fin-de-siècle relic: there's with an underground pool, a Michelin starred restaurant and a bar beloved of the French capital's style set. Rooms from £256 per night.
